Jennifer's "Silver Linings Playbook" co-star Bradley Cooper previously hosted "SNL," but she said she didn't get any advice from him or any other members in the film's cast.

"No, they didn't. They should've. They've just said it's going to be the most amazing experience of my life, which they were right about," she said.
